Ornaments and necklaces made of fine strips of cane and grass are popular with the hill tribes in the area. The indigenous jewellery made from forest-based products involves very intricate work and is exceptionally beautiful. The Akas make bamboo bangles and ear ornaments which they decorate with intricate burnt-poker work designs. Besides making ear ornaments from glass beads, wild seeds, cane, bamboo, and reed the Wanchos make beautiful necklaces out of grass.
